Health Initiative (OHI)

Health Initiative (OHI)

Classes are free and meet on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings in the Berger auditorium. The Oakmont Health Initiative is a volunteer organization dedicated to the health and well-being of Oakmont residents. Programs are targeted to active adults with good balance and lateral movement. It is supported by Fund Raisers, the OVA and the Oakmont Community Foundation.

Equipment: Non-skid yoga mat, athletic shoes, water bottle, small hand towel. Please join us. This is a big class designed for active adults. If you need special supervision, it is advisable to join a smaller class first and consult a personal trainer or medical professional to learn modifications that are suitable to your condition. Participants need to use their judgment and body awareness… altering each exercise to prevent injury. Please check with your doctor prior to beginning this or any exercise regimen. A fall can cause serious injury. Be careful dear ones.

Meeting Details:
  • Mondays 9-10 – Berger Center
  • Wednesdays 9-10 – Berger Center
  • Fridays 9-10:15 – Berger Center* (*2nd Fridays no class)
Consult Health Initiative Web site calendar or Oakmont News for times and locations. Fee: free

9/11 Memories and Exercise

Today we remember the day that shocked and shook the world with a painful look back. This is also a time to look ahead at how to mitigate lingering negative responses. Living in constant concern, anxiety and fear robs the good from each day. Deep breathing and reading comics may be ways to cope. Talking to a positive person might be another. And still a third: exercise.

Hooked on Exercise

One man’s music is another woman’s motivation to move, move and move. The pre-1970 body, that is. What do Hot August Night Car Shows and Rock n Roll have in common? OHI class has the answer, Moonday, Wednesday and Fridays, 9:00 Berger.
